Watch a free, full-scale re-enactment of Jesus' final days, from his arrest to his resurrection, featuring 100 performers in central London.


See the biblical story spectacularly brought to life at the annual performance of The Passion of Jesus in Trafalgar Square on Good Friday.

Witness this moving performance from the Wintershall Players, which commemorates the day Jesus is believed to have been arrested, tried and crucified. A cast of more than 100 actors and volunteers, dressed in splendid costumes with horses, doves and a donkey come together to create an impressive scene in the famous square.

Professional actor and artist James Burke-Dunsmore will play Jesus for an 11th and final time this year.

The show has become a permanent fixture of London’s Easter weekend and attracts tens of thousands of spectators, encompassing all faiths.

There are two 90-minute live performances at 12pm and 3.15pm, which are projected onto big screens so everyone in the square can follow the action.

The Passion of Jesus includes a realistic interpretation of the crucifixion, so parental guidance is advised.
